Conspiracy theories always seem to find their way back to one “organization,” the Illuminati. The Merriam-Webster definitions of illuminati are: “any of various groups claiming special religious enlightenment”, “persons who are or who claim to be unusually enlightened”, and “elite”. However, Dictionary.com gives some more interesting definitions: “
So what is this organization that people keep theorizing about?
Their origins: Bavaria.
The Bavarian Illuminati was started by a man named Adam Weishaupt (Spartacus) in 1776, founded on similar pretenses to Jesuit priests he trained in the catholic church. The original goal of the group was to teach people how to be happy by promoting goodness by “illuminating the mind and freeing I from prejudice and superstition.” As any organization of people who wants to make changes, they eventually find the need to involve government – or more likely, take it over. Supposedly membership declined in the 1790s, but how could a successful organization all of a sudden just disappear? (1)
Conspiracies have been thought up for centuries about the Illuminati’s involvement in pop culture, and especially government. According to some, the goal of the Illuminati is to enslave all people of society.
What are some ways to tell who is associated with Illuminati? What are their symbols?
Where have you seen some of these before?
Where can members of the Illuminati be seen?
- Beyonce Knowles
- Britney Spears
- Kim Kardashian
- Angelina Jolie
- Lady Gaga
- Kanye West
- President Barack Obama (Wait what? How do you know?)
So yes, the Bavarian Illuminati seemed to have disappeared by the 1800s, but their symbols and goal of attempting to change the world through “illumination” and policy changes seemed to have lived on.
Examples of politicians using symbols of the illuminati:
Maybe the pyramid is a little more believable with this one, in terms of the way money runs our capitalist country in particular.
What has happened to those who have been supposedly against the Illuminati in the past? They have “mysteriously” disappeared.
There have been some politicians who have supposedly been part of Illuminati, and others who have not, and have been very much against it. Some people believe that the reason former President John F. Kennedy was assassinated because he was planning to expose the Illuminati and end its reign on society.
